MFOB FEATURED BOOK: Selected Poems 1968–2014

Selected Poems 1968–2014 offers 46 years of work drawn from 12 individual collections by a poet who is considered one of the most significant English Language poets born since the Second World War. Paul Muldoon seems determined to escape definition, yet this volume, compiled by the poet himself, serves as an indispensable introduction to his trademark combination of intellectual hijinks and emotional honesty, with playfulness, humor, and anger all at once.
